Your website is an investment. Your brand, your message, your mainstay for communicating value to the world.
Bad guys, script kiddies, bots — they all want your cheese. To deface your site. Mine bitcoin. To distribute malware or post personal ads for web-order brides. Known security holes make that all too easy.
Fortunately, the Drupal Security Team has your back.
It’s Wednesday. Time to patch your website.
Every Wednesday the Drupal Security Team releases updates for any Drupal modules that have security issues. They do the hard part. Then it’s up to us, as website owners, to apply those security updates.
Have you patched your Drupal sites?
We’ve applied these recent security updates —
- Drupal core for our Drupal 7 and 8 clients
- entity api module for our Drupal 7 clients
- custom_permissions module for our Drupal 7 clients
- filefield_sources module for our Drupal 7 clients
- entity_ref_tab_formatter module for our Drupal 8 clients
What are you doing Wednesday?
Important stuff — meetings, requirements, new features — business-critical stuff. Even if you have a development team, they have more productive things to do than patch your website.
Leave the updates to EL Studio.
Let us keep up with the security updates your site needs.
Each Wednesday when a pertinent security notice is released we update your website and test it.
- We apply security updates and test them on your staging server
- From there we deploy them to production, or we can leave that to you — whichever best fits your workflow
- We cover security updates for Drupal core and the modules installed on your site — any updates the security team has posted to drupal.org
- We cover minor-version updates. Major-version jumps (say from Webform 3.x to 4.x, for example) require more configuration and testing than can be done automatically.
- We fit into your workflow and your tools. We can commit modules to git or update composer and run your test suite. We deploy to Pantheon, Acquia — even your own servers. Or we can make suggestions if you’d like advice on best practices for testing and deployment.
